Hi Huel and everyone,
I have been diagnosed with Gastritis caused by most likely a month off from work and over indulging in lots and lots of red wine, rich food, coffee and I would take quite a lot of aspirin if I was hungover. Silly and naive 25 year old me didn’t realise that was a perfect concoction for inflaming my stomach lining!
My doctor has had me on PPIs (reduces stomach acid production to give the stomach some nicer conditions to recover in) for 5 weeks but there is no sign of any real recovery.
I have been told that diet is absolutely key in the recovery from gastritis and I am struggling to find something that works for me… I have been a Hueligan for over a year and love the black addition and the white snack bars.
MY MAIN QUESTION is, does anyone know if it is a good idea to start using Huel shakes and the bars in my daily diet in this period of stomach recovery? I know I am meant to be eating really plain food, rice, boiled eggs, grilled fish and that type of food, but because I work in an environment where all my food is cooked for me, I can’t control what is provided.
Has anyone had gastritis who can give me some advice?
Is Huel natural enough to be having with an inflamed stomach or is there lots of chemicals or irritants in the powder and the bars that would be a problem?
I’m at a total loss as to how to get better, how long it will take and what I should be eating.
Thank you so much to anyone that replies
